Mendes has yet to play a senior match for Sporting but has trained with the first team squad.

And his performances have obviously attracted the attention of Nani who has put in a glowing review to United chiefs.

Nani spent eight years at Old Trafford before eventually returning to boyhood club Sporting in 2018.

It appears as though Mendes could follow in his footsteps the Daily Star reports.
